another drawing class critique

structure

This in-class assignment, as I said before, focuses on texture, structure and creating the illusion of spacial depth in a composition. The difference between 2D and 3D artwork is that 3D is actual object, in space. One can move completely around it.  It has height, width, depth and maybe volume. 2 Dimensional artwork like drawing, painting or printmaking has only height and width. The depth is an illusion.

The subject matter , in this case, is out door vegetation, or landscape. Some of the questions we ask when critiquing this work…Is the space believable? Does the image appear to have depth?  We discuss foreground, middle ground and background.

The homework assignment consists of drawing a self portrait using a mirror.  The portrait can be simple contour line and texture, and/or it can also incorporate value. Even in the simplest images using only line and texture, we can see the illusion of depth.

Everyone always enjoy this critique. Lots of struggle in the process, but results are always strong.
